From [Susannah] Crippin in Wednesbury to Mary Tooth at Madeley. It is inconvenient for her to come to Newport or she would have gladly made the trip. She thought it best to inform Tooth as perhaps some other friend could supply her place in Tooth's gig [type of carriage]. She wishes Tooth good speed in the Lord who will certainly bless his work whether they are intended to be the instruments or not. 'At the same time we should be thoughtful that he accepts of the services of his creatures, and allows us opportunities of promoting his cause…'
She has received a letter from Mrs Powell - Tooth will be pleased to remember Crippin to her at the next opportunity.
Crippin hopes that by this time, Tooth's health is restored and her 'indisposition of body' removed.
